Game of Thrones is a fantasy drama show based off of the famous novels written by George R. R. Martin. The show is known most for its enormous cast that has a multitude of plot lines, all woven together. Some of the major houses that reside in the Seven Kingdoms (despite the fact that some members had been exiled) include Targaryen, Lannister, Stark, and Baratheon. Of course, there are a number of other noble houses that are significant to the show, but these are the most influential in the war.
Speaking of war, there are two major plots that exist within the show. The first and most obvious is that some of the characters from these major houses are in a constant battle against each other for the Iron Throne. The second war, and most important, is between the living and the White Walkers. Unfortunately, for most who live south of The Wall, they believe that the existence of White Walkers is only a myth. This proves to be false in later seasons when Jon Snow brings the threat to King's Landing.
